Can you post a copy of the Rebbe’s letter about conversions? To what question was the letter in response?

The shulchan aruch for the Noahide code

Excellent presentation. Much needed for now and for the future. Your efforts are appreciated. As point of interest: Many non-Jews of varied backgrounds are coming to the conclusion that the “Orthodox” Jewish presentation of H-shem and the Torah is the valid one. They themselves are searching for learned and understanding Jews to teach them about the related Torah information and how to follow the Sheva Mitzvahs B’nai Noach.
